Happy October First! It really feels like Autumn here, which is my favorite time of the year. The leaves are changing and there is a lovely crackle underfoot when I walk with Cleo. I am so looking forward to starting some new quilts in October.

I have finished the Treasure Map quilt and pattern, and now have it in my shop. This design is perfect for using either a layer cake or fat eight bundle (I used the fabric collection "Mod Century" from Moda) along with some solids for a modern look. The solids in my quilt are linen/cotton blend and I like the texture that they lend.
The pattern includes instructions for a small lap quilt or crib quilt (54" x 56"). I backed mine with flannel to make it...
